i have a WinXP machine on a laptop trying to print to a SAMBA+CUPS configuration on my linux box.
somehow i just can't do it..
the spool file managed to get generated, but nothing comes out from the printer!
i have been reading up but the configurations on samba seems right...
below is my configuration.. it does look all right to be..
CUPS at http://localhost:631
shows that the job is complete.. but i don;t see why it should be coz nothing is coming out of my printer
